I think lawyers like me are about as popular and well thought of as congress members and AIG executives.  Just in the last few days I have felt the sting of prejudice when asked to financially support a couple of non-profit groups and projects, but to do so without being directly involved because others would not be if my involvement was known.  I suppose after 23 years of practice I would get used to it.  Actually, I love what I do and am proud of the people I represent who stick up for all of us.  I am off to Washington State University Wednesday to talk about what I do and how I believe that representing people in litigation against food manufacturers serves a positive role for society as a whole.  Go Cougs!  By the way, click on below to view slides.  There are three blank slides that will actually be videos.
